Google to manufacture drones in Tamil Nadu for exporting; Make in India

Tech giant- Google is making strides in the Indian market with plans to manufacture drones in Tamil Nadu, as part of the Make in India initiative. If all goes according to plan, these drones could be exported to countries like the US and Australia, marking a significant development in India's manufacturing landscape.

 

Alphabet, Google's parent company, is currently in discussions with the Tamil Nadu government to establish production facilities for drones. Spearheading this operation will be Alphabet's subsidiary, Wing LLC, known for its expertise in drone delivery services. This move underscores Google's commitment to local manufacturing and its recognition of India's potential as a key market.

 

The establishment of drone assembly lines in Tamil Nadu; Wing aims to boost its global operations and meet the rising demand for autonomous delivery solutions in India. Already a prominent player in the drone delivery space, Wing's expansion into Indian manufacturing signifies its confidence in the country's skilled workforce and productive business environment.

 

The Indian government's proactive measures to promote domestic drone production have further incentivized companies like Google to invest in the country's manufacturing ecosystem. Projections suggest that India's drone market could reach $13 billion by 2030, reflecting the immense growth potential in this sector.

 

In addition to drones, Google is also exploring opportunities to produce Pixel smartphones locally in India. Advanced talks with Foxconn and Dixon indicate the tech giant's commitment to tapping into India's burgeoning smartphone market. This move not only strengthens Google's presence in India but also contributes to the country's technological landscape.

 

Google's foray into local manufacturing of drones and smartphones represents a significant milestone in India's technology sector. It reinforces India's position as a key manufacturing hub and opens up new avenues for employment generation and technological innovation. As Google continues to expand its operations in India, the country's manufacturing sector is poised for further growth and development.
